Marlene’s journey is a very fun and powerful one. The plot is great for kids who are learning to accept themselves and find their interests. I feel that Marlene is a very relatable character and many lessons are taught when reading this book. The story line is different from others, telling children that it is okay to be yourself.
I loved the diversity of this book and the difference from regular books. This book showed Marlene’s fear of the hair salon. No fear of bullies, school, parents, friends, and scary dogs. The fear here was different and it is what makes the story very effective overall. Marlene is a beautiful character that shows awesome change throughout the story teaching children that it is okay to be different. I also love the cover of this book colorful, and explaining the deeper meaning of the book as a full. 5/5 would recommend!
